Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund to help Conn. college students

4th District Congressman Jim Himes says colleges and universities in Connecticut will receive millions of dollars from the newly created Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. Half is specifically designated for emergency cash grants to eligible students in need of assistance.  Himes says the colleges will be able to provide financial aid grants to cover students’ expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare. Schools can also use the funds to purchase technology to expand remote learning capabilities and defray expenses such as lost revenue. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund created by the CARES Act provides colleges and universities national-wide $14 billion, of which $6.28 billion is specifically designated for emergency cash grants to students.
